Makeup artist Clay Campbell was born in Chicago in 1901, but grew up in Toronto, Canada. After graduating high school he journeyed to Los Angeles, where he got a job with a wax factory, creating and producing the faces of wax figures. His company was contracted to supply such figures for the Warner Bros. film Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933), and Campbell's work was noticed by Perc Westmore, chief of Warners' makeup department. He hired Campbell to be his assistant. After gaining experience there, Campbell left Warners and went to work for 20th Century-Fox, heading its makeup department, then to Columbia Pictures, where he ran that studio's makeup division. His work can be seen in such films as Young Mr. Lincoln (1939), The Son of Dr. Jekyll (1951), and The Werewolf (1956). He retired in 1966.
